for the emergency services, and mr. romney might consider doing the same with the president now leading nine swing states by an average of six points consistent with his national average. the three newest battleground polls show yet more evidence of mr. romney's september slump. north carolina, the president up by two. nevada, the president up by two. even new hampshire, site of one of mr. romney's many luxury homes, the president leading by seven points. but what about all that jet skiing? well, never fear, mitt's hard at work doing what he does best, attending a fund-raiser today at philadelphia's union club. here it is, looks quite posh. i guess it should be at $50,000 a plate. wait a minute, no, sorry, that's wrong. that's a mistake. that was actually from "trading places," the firm of duke & duke. here is the actual video. let's listen to mr. romney on his chances in the keystone state. >> on november 6th i'm going to win pennsylvania and i'm going to become the next president of the united states. >> okay. just to clarify, the romney campaign is running no ads whatsoever in pennsylvania. mr.

the mood in that campaign? >> well, they kept mr. romney under wraps today in order to keep him focused. he had a very brief meeting with his senior staff and great deal today was actually spent with his staff. they don't want to leave it in the locker room they want him to come out and bring best game this evening. they are quite confident about it by virtue stepping on to the stage tonight as the challenger, mitt romney has the most to gain. they fully expect by virtue of standing next to the president there could be a bounce in the polls as a consequence of that. having said all of they're, the race to lower's examines appears to have been won by mr. rom anymore. the latest gallup poll shows fairly decisively when it comes to who voters thinks will win the debates president obama has a substantial lead. there you see it, 57% think president obama will win the three presidential debates in the next three and a half, four weeks and that governor romney will lose them or at least a third of them asked believe that. romney has the opportunity to overachieve. it's sort of what campaigns want.

and come back to the main chance here, the issue is whether mr. romney, governor romney is going to inject foreign policy leadership into wednesday's debate. there's enormous speculation, some of it fueled by his op-ed piece in "the wall street journal" that blasted the president. i know the debate is about the economy, but it's also about leadership, do you reckon governor romney will put foreign policy into that debate. >> all this month you're going to have a contrast on the economy and foreign policy. what chairman o'ryan said is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy. the set backs, the killing in the middle east of an american ambassador. a break in our relationship with our most important ally in the region, and in soyria, over 30,000 people are dead. president obama thinks strength is provocative and history teaches us that weak is provocative. and we're weak overseas as we have seen our defense capabilities decrease and as the president hasn't stood up, with resolution for our values. so, yes, leadership is the overriding issue and it plays both foreign policy and on the econo

about that. mr. romney has been working on ways to address the idea that he's actually running to be president for 100% of the nation. and mr. romney has frankly complained several times in recent weeks that what he's worried about is the president will misrepresent he, mr. romney's positions. the governor of massachusetts complained the romney campaign distorted his position on abortion, taxes auto bailout and other things. one of the things they're prepared for is that rhetoric coming from the president and how mr. romney would call him out for lying to the public or being deceptive. a lot of that is going to play out. it's not just a battle of facts. both mr. obama and romney will come well prepared for that. it's how they conduct themselves, how they come across to viewers and a lot of that's very, very personal. frankly, you can't really rehearse it. that's what makes the anticipation so high. the expectation game so important, it's the unscripted moment that people are watching for. bill? >> bill: 50 million plus americans watching four years ago. huge audience. >>> 25-ye

romney has on his hands. in an op-ed, rove says, quote, mr. romney must call out the president. that is not so easy. mr. romney can't call mr. obama a liar. that's too harsh a word that would backfire. mr. romney must instead set the record straight in a presidential tone firm, respectful, but not deferential. joining me to talk about it from washington, richard goodstein, a democratic strategist who helped get al gore ready for the debates in 2000. on the phone from nebraska, brett o'donnell who is debate coach for mitt romney for part of the republican primary season. good afternoon to both of you gentlemen. >> good to be with you. >> let me start with you. tell me about the balance that romney has to strike, calling out, calling out president obama without appearing to be unfair or perhaps even nasty. >> well, i think it's all a matter of tone and language. and for governor romney, i would describe it as being respectfully but passionately aggressive. so in the way he refers to the president, referring to him as mr. president, with all due respect, but he also can't let that

iran. and here's what mr. romney said regarding that call. >> i do not believe that in the final analysis we will have to use military action. i certainly hope we don't have to. i can't -- i can't take that option off the table. >> seems like a little softer stance there from mitt romney coming out now, too. no talk of red lines. so what's going on overall? >> well, clearly the president's policy is the one that everyone is coalescing around. even mitt romney finds it hard to disagree with a notion that we should have a diplomatic solution. some of his advisers like john bolton, however, argued for bombing yesterday. but that flies in the face of a broad swath of bipartisan security experts who argue that bombing iran would facility their acquisition of a nuclear weapon. >> okay, joel rubin. many thanks for coming on. >> thank you. >> office politics. savannah guthrie tells me about her latest interview with president obama and the questions she wish she had asked him. why should our wallets tell us what our favorite color is? every room deserves to look great. and every footstep
